Someone from somewhere who was aged 17 turning 18 someday. This someone doesn't wear her heart on her sleeve but lays it on the page for you to see. One day she would love to live every day just to daydream, how glorious a dream that would be.

Message from Writer

Between Narnia and Neverland, I stand. Two feet firmly planted on the ground but with my head right in the clouds. I write to live, and live to write, and live to live to live.

Butterfly Love

PROMPT: Poetry and Spoken Word Competition 2018

Like a butterfly
Love lands just beneath my nose.
Ticklish.
Beautiful.
Breathtaking.
But just as quickly, love can disappear
Leaving nothing but dark chocolate memories.
 
Meeting you,
I learned that
Love can grow slowly
Or seem to appear out of nowhere.
Just like how
Once upon a time
I fell for you.
 
Our love grew
Over time.
And with the way time travels
Whether it was a short or long time ago
That I met you
I don’t...

Sugarcane

PROMPT: Chunyun

The machine whirs as it crushes the slim stalk of the sugarcane pressing out lime green juice that shined in the beating sun. The old lady doesn't say a word as we exchange — paper for sweet syrup. As I take a sip, the lady takes the heavily bruised body and chucks it into a cardboard box — more useful than a trash bin. Easy to dispose of and came free with the sugarcanes she had purchased at dawn.

Monster in Your House

PROMPT: Monster Flash Fiction Competition 2018

Gnaw. Chew. Munch. Crunch. Spit. Bones split into halves and thirds and quarters. He hears the wooden floor groan under you. He senses you freezing. He raises his shaggy, unkempt head knowing that if he looked you directly in the eyes, you would be frightened. Frightened on how his eyes shine in dark and yet seem to lead you into nothing but a dark abyss of horrors.

He knows how his gaze holds you in fear, he sees it in...

Storm

PROMPT: Flash Fiction Competition 2017

The skies wailed. The clouds scattered. The winds ejected. From the patio, she watched and remembered.  

In a broken home, a woman wailed from abandonment. Broken brandy bottles scattered. Hateful words ejected upon a little girl. Cold eyes that held no spark. A door opened and slammed shut. A figure disappeared into the rain. Alone, all the little girl could do was wait by the dying fire. 

A door opened and creaked closed. The memory dispersed. A tiny hand grabbed hers. Her...

Cactus

PROMPT: Returning

And when I returned to the old brick home, in which my grandparents reside, I found myself searching the gardens. A one-player game of "hide-and-seek" took place in the bushes, in which so many moons ago, bouncy balls, flying discs and figurines would hide. Rusty ballet steps had me looping around the washing poles, where sunny days were passed playing tag or dancing to music only children could hear. Childish peek-a-boos with stained-glass windows revealed bygone children that had glimpsed...
